WHY REGISTER A TRADEMARK ?


A registered trademark gives the exclusive use of that name, providing its owner the capability:

  • To create “Trademark Value” (Goodwill), an active intangible for the company
  • To offer licenses and franchises
  • To be differentiated from competitors
  • To be protected from third parties using an equal or similar name, exercising the legal actions that correspond
  • To protect the Internet domain name
  • To impede others attempting to register similar trademarks
  • To have priority over third parties wanting to register their trademarks, in countries which do not require registration
